Those of us who work around the water know of its corrosive nature—especially salt water. Despite all of the Marina Bull’s great features to ameliorate rust and corrosion, Neptune is patient. He will eventually overcome the best of precautions. This is one reason why most of you (all of you?) rinse down the bottom of a boat once it is away from the seawall and raised about 6-8 feet.
When you lift a boat out of the water and tilt it back, sea or lake water often flows back over parts of the lift. So when you finish washing the boat, take that opportunity to wash down the forks, carriage, mast, and other parts of your Marina Bull that were exposed to water.
That 5 minutes will make that long-lasting Marina Bull last even longer.
